Recently purchased a 2005 Legacy GT 5EAT with 112K miles for under 8 grand. The car is flawless inside and out, everything seems to be mechanically sound. First major mods added to the car was the Invidia Q300 quad tip exhaust, and Invidia catless downpipe. Hope to meet a lot of new friends on the GT forum.

Welcome to the boards.
Hoping you had a small tune done after installing those parts to help free up the power.

What area you located in?

Thanks Karumba, I have not done any tuning to the car yet. I was in the process of buying an accessport v2 but have not found one for the right price. I took the car to a local shop this morning to get the car checked out. I am not sure how much boost the car is running. Once I find an accessport I will deffinately take the car to a tuner to get it mapped.

I am located in Massachusetts 45 minutes north of Boston.

Hello! Sounds like a pretty sweet subaru. I bet that invidia exhaust sounds great.

Scasey thanks for the new member welcome, the Legacy spends majority of its time in Maine at my girls place. I plan on working on the Legacy more but will just have to wait till I have the proper funds to do so. Hope to catch you around sometime during Subaru and Legacy meets.

Jshute the Invidia catless downpipe and Invidia q300 quad tip really make the car rumble. I wasn't sure how loud was it going to be but it suits the car real well the drone inside the car is almost non existent but it does rumble outside. Looking to add some headers + up pipe and a Cobbs AP V2 + tune in the near future just have to wait for the right time.

Agency Power has a set of good unequal length headers that will keep the subaru sound.

Welcome! Sounds like you have the itch already. Get used to it. That LGT is goin to be your obsession, if not already.

Jshute- I will definitely look into the Agency Power UEL headers you suggested.

Haight 05LGT- The mod bug is biting and I'm really itching to buy parts but I will have take it one step at a time. I have a long list of parts that I want to upgrade but winter is right around the corner so I will save up for the spring then dump money into the car.

Welcome and sounds like you got a great car. Looking forward to your improvements. Since you didn't mention the color, make sure you get over to the appropriate official photo thread and post up pictures of your car.

Again, welcome.
